France's eastern borders contain some of its most historic vineyards. Alsace is the

home of aromatic, spicy varietals such as Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer,

their textural richness a perfect match with chicken and pork.

White Bordeaux is predominantly, and exclusively in the case of the sweet Sauternes,

made from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle - Typical blends are usually 80%

Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc. As with the reds, white Bordeaux wines are usually

blends, most commonly of Sémillon and a smaller proportion of Sauvignon Blanc.

Other permitted grape varieties are Sauvignon Gris, Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Merlot Blanc,

Ondenc and Mauzac.

Burgundy: From Auxerre and Chablis in the north to the great vineyards of the Cote

d'Or, the terroir is a mixture of limestone and clay, where the grape variety

chardonnay finds its truest and most subtle expression. From the simpler village

wines to the truly profound and opulent 1er and Grand Cru examples, one can see the

amazing diversity of this famous region.
